Contrary to what everyone thinks, the majority of estate sales are done when the homeowner is alive and well. If professionally organized, one can quickly downsize and make a good profit in the process.
A lifetime of collecting can really fill up a home. Most families live in an average 4 bedroom house, and after the children are grown up, and moved out, those rooms make a nice storage space for a lot of stuff.
Unintentionally we tend to keep everything, store it for later, until it becomes an overwhelming burden weighing us down. The best time for an estate sale is now.
Most couples will downsize after the kids have moved out, and the home they are moving into is usually smaller.
First thought is “Let’s hold a big garage sale”, unfortunately the value you get in a garage sale doesn’t justify the effort, a lot of stuff is left over, and it becomes difficult to find an estate sale company to take on the project of selling left overs.
A downsizing estate sale is one of the best options to liquidate those personal assets and make the most money in the process.
Another reason most people hold an estate sale while they’re alive is because they are retiring, and finally going to travel and enjoy the life they’ve been waiting for.
Leaving behind stuff, tends to drag you down, they want to travel without having to think about the baggage they left behind.
A couple last year decided to sell their home and all their personal property to hit the road in their 40 foot RV.
The organized estate sale not only accomplished liquidating all their furniture and personal property, but it gave them a nice chunk of spending money for the road. It made us smile when we received their thank you post card all the way from North Carolina.
